I've had experience writing some complicated mathematical algorithms in MATLAB and some simple code in C++. Beyond that, I have minimal coding experience. I have a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering, and no work experience. My confidence in being chosen by you for game design is really low. I LOVE video games and would LOVE to be a part of the creation process, though. I have an engineering, analytical mindset, and I understand coding to some simple extent. What is your opinion on entry level positions and introducing people in to the game design field? Would you take a newb, or are your jobs for experienced persons only? I'd like to start my career, and I would enjoy game design. I'll browse the openings after my shift tonight.

I would love to do something with numbers. I could learn if trained well. What do you say?

We hire voice actors like all companies - through their agents/organizations/other acting contracting services. This is almost how all voice actors operate, whether in SAG or not.

Hey Zileas,

I've sent you an e-mail on LinkedIn since I won't be down at GDC this year. I've been in the industry about 3 years now and I'm very interested in talking about these positions. Have a good weekend!

14+ years of DotA/LoL should be enough of a resume

I looked at the list and didn't see anything regarding a music internship, for composing, etc.

When do you think you'd ever have an openning in the music department? Unfortunately i'm only a freshman college student, though.
